The book that changed my life...  Max Perkins, Editor of Genius. It was the book that showed me that working with words could be an entire career.   The most amazing meal I've ever had... The first tasting menu they ever did at Torrisi Italian Specialties on Mulberry Street, now sadly closed to make room for their bigger, newer ventures. It's a bit like watching a band you loved in college start playing Madison Square Garden--exciting, but you miss the old days.   The morning and nighttime routines I swear by... In the morning, wash with Glossier's Milky Jelly Cleanser, exfoliate with a silicone facial sponge, and slap on some argan oil. I do nothing at night. NOTHING. I don't even wash my face. Don't be like me.   The best décor hack I've learned... Always keep clean towels in the bathroom and cheese in the fridge. You can impress anyone if you have those two things taken care of. My interior stylist spirit animal is...  Vicente Wolf is a genius. He knows exactly what to subtract. The Instagram handles I follow religiously are... All food-related. This season, my go-to cocktail order is... A French 75. The first lesson I learned as an Adult with a capital A...  If you have debt, you don't have savings. Don't try to save in order to knock out your debt all at once; just start tackling it right away and fight off the interest. The most surprising thing I learned from a MyDomaine story is...  This story ruined pre-cut fruit for me forever — read at your own risk.
